S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like? (LI)

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the.

Colin Kaepernick And Dave Ramsey Walk Into A Bar

"Went to a mastermind meeting yesterday. Now, standard mastermind wasn't with a group of people that already knew. It was an invite only meet up with some handpicked people a made the cut. So I showed up. The topic was list building. We broke off into small groups, did more of a typical mastermind in those small groups met a lot of great people there. And something that I heard from more than a few of them was that they were worried about saying something bold. I think one of the reasons for that could have been just the age of this thing. A lot of people in their twenties in their thirties. I'm forty five years old. Second. Oldest person there. This was a younger crowd, but still even if you're in your forties and fifties and your sixty seventies, this is something that follows people around, and if you don't start getting used to it now where you are right now in your life is not likely to change, you have to make change the way that this presents itself is that you think something and your frayed you're going to get a reaction that's not going to be positive. So because of that, a lot of people put on the brakes to what they really want to say. Just this week as an example, an anonymous op Ed in the New York Times, it was bold, but it was an onerous that doesn't have the same weight is when you put your name behind something last episode of talked about Colin Kaepernick, Nike very bold ad featuring Colin Kaepernick. Their name was on it. His name was on it. Lot of backlash on Twitter, but results matter, and here's what the results are. This is an article from time despite the back. Clash in the wake of Nikes endorsement of Colin Kaepernick the sports where companies reported a thirty one percent increase in sales. Nike sales grew thirty one percent from Sunday through Thursday over the Labor Day holiday this year compared to the previous year according to Edison trends, bold works, but you've got to put your name on it. If you feel a certain way, people are gonna find out anyway. We can't keep secrets in this culture. How long do you think that the New York Times op-ed guy has I give it till the end of the year. It's probably going to be before the election. We've got maybe a couple of months. I'm giving it four months max before we find out who this guy is. If you're thinking already, you might as well say it and if you're going to say it, you might as well put your name on it. When you do this on your podcast, you're going to attract the listeners who are also thinking what you're thinking. The maybe they're not saying anything, and maybe if they are saying something they're non Mus something related to this subject, a very well known broadcast. Podcast, Dave Ramsey he's a bold guy talking about faith, family freedom, whatever daveramsey talks about debt the debt snowball. We kind of know how that calls going to go don't. If you've heard one, Dave Ramsey episode, you've heard them all, but is that bold persona the he has paying down debt, big deal, duh. They teach us stuff in high school, but this guy's had years and years of success. Given that same simple message because of his bold stand, his bold personality, his bowl, beliefs that he's not afraid to share with listeners.

So we put it all together and looked at it. We pull it apart and looked at it. Pretty interesting. Conclusions. You can come to from reading this. And a lot of the mythology that people believe about wealthy people is just garbage. 'cause we found out we found the actual wealthy people and talk to them not your broke brother-in-law with an opinion show this study and Chris revelations about the study in everyday millionaires is unbelievably cool. So you can get the book for twenty dollars a book comes out January seventh if you wanna pre purchase it. We will bribe you to do that.

"Hi i'm taking my call for my car and only woman a background ipad homebased power but i'm currently working full time for someone al i got my aunts and accounting left here and i have a small bookkeeping insurance throwing business helping us with baby steps to i know i can make more money business but i don't have time for anymore clients but my fulltime job and we need that money so what should i do we go baby stuck to its behind us and all have more flexibility or how can i make the transition sooner well you know it's great question the fact that you're in baby steps to definitely affects the answer but it's not the determining factor because even if you were in baby step number two the truth is i still want you to build a side business up because if if the money is there and you make the jump even if you're not uh you know in babysitting ever to you still don't want to fall you don't want to have this uh the bus business becomes a burden instead of a blessing so i want you to build up your revenue in personal income from the side business so much that when you leave the fulltime job as daveramsey says eunepal the boat close enough to the doctor when you step into the boat you don't fall in the water so what that looks like is maybe for a season katie you work crazy hours and it feels like you're working to fulltime jobs because you are but you remember that it's a season and when those revenues in that personal income as there you can make the step and then it's not this terrifying leap it's the next logical step another option would be is to increase the fees that you're charging right now in your side business to make more money per client.
